The newly elected president of the Liberia Marketing Association has stressed the need for peace and reconciliation in order to improve the livelihoods of members of the organization.
Madam Elizabeth Sambola spoke when she was officially certificated by the Adhoc Election Commission of the Liberia Marketing Association in Monrovia Wednesday.
Others officially certificated were Cecelia Weah, National vice president; Patrick Sarti, National Secretary General; Patrick Jolo National Assistant Secretary General and Oldlady Sneh, National Chaplain.
Madam Sambola said wrangling within the LMA has the propensity to obstruct the progress of the association and limit the development of its members.
She thanked members of the Ad hoc election commission of the LMA and the interim management team for their efforts aimed at bringing in the association.
Speaking earlier, the Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Election Committee, Samuel Johnson, thanked members of the association for cooperating with his commission on the holding of the election of a new leadership for the association.
According to him, those elected are to stay in office for the next four years following their induction later this year.
Over the last four years, the LMA has been rocked with internal wrangling and endless legal battle. The program was graced by a large number of people representing the various market branches and chapters including the interim Chairperson, Cllr Luseni Bility.
